LAWRENCE, Kan. — Perry Ellis had 27 points and 13 rebounds, Devonte Graham hit the go-ahead free throw in the third overtime and top-ranked Kansas outlasted Buddy Hield and second-ranked Oklahoma 109-106 on Monday night in an early showdown of Final Four contenders.

Wayne Selden had 21 points and Graham finished with 20 for the Jayhawks (13-1, 2-0 Big 12), who had chances to win the game in regulation and each of the first two overtimes before finally getting it done.

Hield had a career-high 46 points for Oklahoma (12-1, 1-1), but he made two crucial turnovers in the final extra session, then missed a potential tying 3-pointer at the buzzer as the Jayhawks celebrated.

Virginia Tech 70, (4) Virginia 68: Zach LeDay scored 18 of his 22 points in the second half and blocked London Perrantes’ attempt to tie the game in the final seconds and the Hokies stunned the Cavaliers (12-2, 1-1 ACC) in Blacksburg, Virginia.

The Hokies (10-5, 2-0 ACC) got 16 points from Justin Bibbs and 13 from Seth Allen in ending a seven-game losing streak against their in-state rivals.

After the final horn, Hokies fans stood and screamed with delight as the school’s adopted anthem, “Enter Sandman,” shook the walls of Cassell Coliseum.

(6) NORTH CAROLINA 106, FLORIDA STATE 90: Brice Johnson had career highs of 39 points and 23 rebounds to lead the visiting Tar Heels (14-2, 3-0 ACC) to a win.

It was the first 30-point, 20-rebound game in North Carolina history and it was the first 20-20 game for a Tar Heel since Tyler Zeller had 20 points and 22 rebounds against Ohio in the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

(17) WEST VIRGINIA 95, TCU 87: Jaysean Paige scored seven of his 20 points in the late clinching run for foul-plagued West Virginia, which won at Fort Worth, Texas, for its sixth straight victory.

Paige led six players scoring in double figures for the Mountaineers (13-1, 2-0 Big 12).

POLL: Kansas and Oklahoma moved to the top two spots in The Associated Press’ college basketball poll.
